      I think my husband prays everyday that our daughter will be a lesbian.

      Seriously, I wouldn't pray that my children be either gay or straight.  I don't really pray for anything to do with their sexuality.  I do hope that they will be happy in whatever relationship that they end up in and that their partner loves them.

      I honestly don't care about the specifics of that relationship.

      It made me wonder why a parent would not pray for much deeper things like inner strength and courage etc. How would ones sexual preference help in the trials we might encounter in life.

      Maybe I am missing something?

        Its called being an idiot.
        When a normal person is expecting a child all they care about is having a healthy baby.

          Yes it is a natural instinct to want that.

      Maybe for the attention?

      I can't imagine her stating wanting her child to be anything else would cause people to react so much. I wonder why that is?

    Maybe she read the comment I saw on Hub Pages forums a while back and took it to heart. Someone claimed gays were the best and the brightest in every field of endeavor. Everyone wants the best for their kids.
